The long-awaited sequel to Green Rider, First Rider's Call, and The High King's Tomb.
Once a simple student, Karigan G'ladheon finds herself in a world of deadly danger and complex magic, compelled by forces she cannot understand when she becomes a legendary Green Rider - one of the magical messengers of the king. Forced by magic to accept a dangerous fate she would never have chosen, headstrong Karigan has become completely devoted to the king and her fellow Riders.

Destiny???s pawn balks and whines through 4 books

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The story has a decent plot but shows little advancement of character throughout.


Has Blackveil turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.


What does Ellen Archer bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

I enjoyed Ellen Archer.


Do you think Blackveil needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes!. The series is not finished.


Any additional comments?

Then hero of this series is just as immature and willful and stubborn at the end of the 4th book as she was in the first book. When the hero of a series doesn???t grow or change his or her habit pattern through a series of books I think the author has done the character a disservice. Why is it that when the hero is challenged by the villain that he or she has about five minutes to argue about their fate and natter on and on for five pages instead of defending herself. She never believes her eyes and suffers time and time again. She is constantly willing to hurt those she cares about but agonizes over the smallest slight done to her.

love audible for bringing this audio to us

If you fancy a well written fantasy with all the right ingredients, with tales that weave in and out the main one without being all mess up, with the universal battle between good and evil not being too predictable, with the right dose of romance, an -of course- unobtainable one at that and again making you doubt the final outcome.Well I think you will enjoy this series, as for this book (Blackveil) in particular the positive point is mainly that keeps your interest in the series and you expect the next one, which in my opinion at this point in the series is no small task.
The negative points are the time elapsed between books and the recounts needed to update the reader of previous events. But miss Kristen Britain does not overdo the latter
so, all in all i'll say: enjoyable, worth the money and the time!
